We invite you to share the stories and ideas that have been kindled by Artes Mundi 9, presented at National Museum Cardiff and Chapter.


Artes Mundi and Literature Wales have teamed up with Where I’m Coming From to collect and present stories from around Wales. Anyone can submit a piece, whether it be a memory you have reconnected with or a new vision that has been ignited, we would love you to share these with us.

In total, six stories will be chosen and the writers will receive support from Where I’m Coming From and Literature Wales to develop their ideas and work. These stories will be published by Artes Mundi in their online journal.


Stories and ideas you share can be sent as written pieces or recorded as short audio files or films. For families or groups of friends experiencing Artes Mundi 9 together, perhaps you might play a game of ‘round robin’ where each of you offers a sentence or a word in turn to create a story together.
